Orbus

Polity: Spatterjay #3

Neal Asher

4 Stars

I love Asher’s writing. Not a single “human” [as we would think of it] in this book and yet characterization came through loud and clear.
Blood, guts, ichor and science. What a winning combo.

An old captain, a war drone and a Polity ship head to a neutral zone between Polity and the Prador kingdom. The prador from the previous Splatterjay books turns into what the king is, a mutated prador. In the process, it is revealed that the splatterjay virus is actually a form of Jain tech, which emerges and is barely headed off by the King of the Prador, who dies. Closer ties are hinted at between the Pradors and Polity
